St. Francis High School to Host Annual Ensuring Our Future Auction in March
Wheaton, IL – February 4, 2019
The annual St. Francis High School Ensuring Our Future Auction, ROADTRIP 2019, is scheduled for Saturday, March 9, 2019 to raise funds to support the school’s academic enhancements, athletic teams, arts programs, co-curricular clubs and tuition assistance.
St. Francis High School attracts bright, diverse and motivated students who have opportunities to grow academically and personally through their healthy involvement in the arts, athletics, service, clubs and campus ministry. Students are elevated to be the best version of themselves through a respectful, supportive and challenging environment as they prepare for college and beyond.
The auction will begin with Mass at 5:00 p.m. in the school’s Slant Dome, followed by a delicious buffet, open bar, socializing and bidding in the Spyglass Athletic Center with entertainment provided by the St. Francis High School Jazz Ensemble.
A professional auctioneer will lead guests in bidding on unique LIVE packages, which include tickets to Lollapalooza and the Rolling Stones, trips to Napa Valley and a special weekend at the Indy 500, among others. Numerous packages will also be available throughout the event in the silent auction, for which bidding is done online.
“Parents and families appreciate the commitment of the teachers,” says Ed Jensen, chair of the SFHS Board of Directors. “They really get to know the students individually both inside and outside the classroom, are approachable, and take a genuine interest in their academic, physical, social and spiritual development. It is clear that their goal is for each and every student to succeed.”
This year’s auction is co-chaired by Jeanette Curtis (Naperville), Barb Goetzke (Bartlett) and Alicia Haley (Naperville) and Dana Mueller (Bartlett), all of whom are parents of current students at the school.
